Easy Antipasto Plate
Go to the marinated and canned section of your store and find what you love. Arina Lanis note: I love purchasing these items at Trader Joe's because they are all right next to each other. Some of my favorite things are:

1 can of Artichoke Hearts
1 jar of marinated olives (stuffed with almonds, onions, garlic, or whatever you like)
1 jar of marinated red and yellow peppers
1 jar of pre-made tamponade
1 jar of sun dried tomatoes in olive oil additional jars of items you like goat or sheep cheese crackers

Make sure to drain all jars of the water or olive oil.  Cut up the items (such as artichoke hearts and peppers into small pieces, carefully arrange all items on plate, making sure that the colors go well together.  Use chopsticks to move and arrange items neatly on the platter and use paper towels to absorb any extra liquids which may mix on the platter.  Lastly, add your favorite cheese and have a selection of crackers... enjoy!
